There was a point in time – not too long ago – when it appeared as if Katt Williams was heading for total destruction, both professionally and personally.
Comedy’s funniest pimp has been headline-quiet as of late, perhaps a sign of more good than bad. At least, until now. President of Programming Michael Lombardo announced Katt will return to HBO with his second stand-up comedy special later this year under the directorial supervision of none other than Spike Lee.
The untitled laugh session will be shot May 17 at Citizens Bank Arena in Ontario, Canada. As a sucker for high-quality stand-up, consider me in. Just know, the follow-up to 2006’s acclaimed The Pimp Chronicles Pt. 1 means Katt has a boatload of expectations to live up to.
